In yesterday’s post about the 30 things women love that men don’t understand, I listed “sexless cotton brief underwear” at number 11. Those are my favorite kinds of lingerie — in cute, fun prints, yes, but cotton, usually paired with a bright, cotton bra with about as much sex appeal as Rainbow Bright. I’ve got some “sexier” lingerie, I suppose, including this lacy bra thingy I bought on The Frisky’s big bra fitting trip earlier this year that has ribbons cascading from it that I save for special occasions (special occasions I won’t be having for another three months, at least). Anyway, my ex never seemed to really notice my undergarments which was great when I was wearing some holey, period-stained thong, but kind of was a bummer when I took the time to match and traded in cotton for lace. But I’ve heard similar complaints from other women — do dudes really give a crap whether the women they’re about to make sweet love to is wearing practical panties from The Gap or a sheer lace booty boy short from La Perla? And if not, why the hell are places that charge $50 for a tiny scrap of fabric still in business? I interrogate the guys on my IM about their lingerie preferences, after the jump… Keep reading »
Victoria’s got a secret. Formaldehyde, the same stuff that preserves corpses, may be giving your boobs a lift, a rash, and even permanent scars. A few women are claiming they developed medical issues from wearing the “Angel’s Secret Embrace” and “Very Sexy Extreme Push Up” bras, and want Vicky to compensate them. Lead by Roberta Ritter, a 37-year-old woman who says she experienced itchy blisters from her bras, the group of women are filing a class action lawsuit against the undergarment company. Shockingly enough, even after collecting complaints from customers and the impending legal action, those particular styles of Victoria Secret bras are still on shelves! Is VS just trying to tempt more people to join the lawsuit? Keep reading »
Lucia Lorio, a luxury lingerie designer, has created a “Find Me If You Can” bra and panties set that comes with its own GPS tracking system. On the side of the sheer white bodice, a black device has been stitched into the hem — ostensibly so your lover knows where you are. Needless to say, many are calling the set made for stalking a “modern day chastity belt.” However, Lorio defends her product: “In London, New York, Rio de Janeiro — wherever there is danger, the underwear may prove to be a lifesaver.” Ironically, it looks like the lingerie equivalent of the GPS ankle bracelet that sex offenders on parole have to wear. Lorio’s selling her high-tech undergarment system for a grand a piece, plus the monthly monitoring fee. It seems like a rip off for something that’s supposed to get ripped off you, and it’s creepy to think about someone trying to keep tabs on your location, especially by tracking your underpants. Consider yourself warned, ladies. It’s all fun and games getting followed via your lingerie — until you realize you’re living in 1984, and Big Brother’s in your underwear drawer.

I only think about my underwear in the millisecond when I yank them out of my dresser drawer in the morning. (Thong or no? Is this going to ride up at the gym?) My bra never matches my out-of-season holiday panties or my cotton boy shorts with a French poodle printed on the butt saying, “Ooh la la!” But whenever I’m in a serious relationship, I give painstaking consideration to my unmentionables. I’ve gotten on a plane wearing an elaborate black-and-pink lace getup under a T-shirt and jeans to meet my boyfriend, and shown up at his doorstep wearing nothing underneath a dress. Keep reading »
I’m not one to transform into a sex vixen when she dons some Victoria’s Secret bustier. And my last striptease? Like Flashdance on rewind. Give me some granny panties and a sports bra, however, and I’m a star. Here, some picks for ladies who prefer less traditional underthings to the super-sexy stuff. So, throw one on, take your passion, and make it happen.

Granny panties are so hot now for young babes. And unlike their tinier counterparts — bikinis, thongs, and tangas — big ol’ briefs will cover your back instead of riding up it. Styles like boy shorts let us shake our booty freely and bend over without getting a wedgie, upsides everyone can get behind. Since we’re too sexy for dental floss undies, here are some full-on Frisky picks, after the jump… Keep reading »
Lacey bras, silk slips, corsets, teddies, garter belts, assless panties…sexy lingerie big bucks, but we’re happy to spend for the fringe benefits! That’s the cost of getting a man’s attention, right? Well, like most things we think about men, we’re wrong. Apparently, all the dudes want is a lady in tube socks. Yes, that’s right, thick tube socks with nothing else. Remember that American Apparel ad? Just like that. If you need more proof to test the sock theory, here’s Gisele Bundchen posed in GQ with no pants, sporting knee-high athletic socks. If you let your man see this picture, he will beg you for some sweet sock action. Guaranteed. Keep reading »
